Since I often times see pictures of people's aeroports sagging, I thought that I should share a little tip to keeping them sagging w/o having to us pvc cement. My team has found that short metal screws do a great job of keeping the ports tight if they are put through the coupling rings and into the port lengths. Hopefully this helps some people out.

i havent seen them, but it looks like it would work great, with minimal resistance.

good work

It's so minimal that it won't cause enough drag to show on the meter. I'd say that it's also a wise idea to still tape the outside of the port like normal (to seal the port off).

That's a great way to do it.

I just really like this method because it's less permanent.

They'll even fall off with Gorilla tape, especially in the hot weather. That's the tape that I normally use.

I usually just wrap the entire port in it, and it has not failed as of yet.

That works, but is expensive. This method is cheap, quick, and effective:). I guess the only downside is that it puts holes in the pvc and other methods don't.

I think you have a good idea,that will work just as well.

I may try it out.
